Boy meets girl :-)

Hello Loviessss,

Hope you've been having a splendid week? Mine has been pretty eventful.

Today we'll be blogging on Menswear - Inspired fashion...... Love my post title better though - boy meets girl :-) *wink*

It’s a changing world, at least when it comes to fashion & menswear-inspired garments have always been a force in the world of fashion. From bow ties, ties, blazers, waist coats and the list is endless.

Menswear-inspired fashion can be seen on celebrities, the runway and in the malls, and in every imaginable combiantion. So how much is too much when it comes to adopting a trend like a menswear inspired trend? And most importantly, who can successfully wear this clothing trend? 

Below are some basic rules you should bear in mind & help you not go wrong with this trend.

- The menswear trend is fun.
- The goal when adopting a menswear trend is not to look like a male but to feminize menswear items. 
-Balance is a key factor to keep in mind. Therefore, focus on one menswear-inspired piece of clothing, such as a blazer or tuxedo pants. 
- Try out several types of menswear options to see which piece is right for you. If you are going to wear that crisp, white blazer, then keep your slacks feminine.
- Accessories are always important, but they should be kept minimal.

Who can wear this trend?

- All trends are going to look better on some people than others, the menswear trend is no exception.
- Women with petite or curvy figures will be able to adopt this look easily.
- Women with broad shoulders should stay away from items such as sharply lined or padded-shoulder blazers, for they will draw attention to the shoulders, which could easily appear out of proportion.
- High-wasted tuxedo pants should accentuate all figured due to the creation of a nice waist line; however, khakis may look frumpy on a larger or pear-shaped woman. Counter that possibility with an unstructured jacket.
- When worn correctly, menswear on women is at once both structured and glamorous

On a final note, the important thing to keep in mind when adopting any fashion trend is that fashion should be something that is an extension of your personality. It should work for you, be comfortable and give you lots of self confidence. You should try to buy pieces that can coordinate easily with other wardrobe pieces to create many outfits, and make you glow with pride when you’re wearing them.

Thanks for always reading :-)

 Mix masculine checkered fabrics, well-tailored separates and menswear-inspired footwear.
Just remember to stay true to some elements that are wonderfully feminine, i.e. bare legs and a killer heel.”

 Add masculine energy with a tie and sleek bottoms & keep it feminine by pairing with a blouse and pumps.
